Re: f/2.8 for me.

Dug in the NAS and found the horribly noisy candy jpeg, here it is in thumbnail form..

On the left is how dark it really appeared to the eye, hard to make out things on the table until grabbed and held up to some weak light from afar. On the right the noisy jpeg, the raw file would clean up much nicer but not about to waste my time now doing that.

Jpeg at ISO 25600, 23mm and  f/2.8 at 1/40 sec, 0EV exp comp - it gave me colours that I had no hope of seeing with my own eyes in that darkness.

That was the sort of light I was shooting people with around that table and had the f/1.8 primes fail AF miserably.

Regards..... Guy
